The research conducted at ADEF aims to increase understanding of teaching and/or training systems, particularly the effects of policy decisions. Their effectiveness is assessed in organisations for the professional training of teachers and/or trainers, through interactions between pupils (trainees), teachers (trainers) and knowledge. The research is structured around three thematic axes: (i) the teaching-learning process, (ii) professionalism and professionalisation of teaching, education and training professions and (iii) educational and training institutions. The laboratory is structured into four teams:

  • Artefacts de formation;

  • Développement professionnel : Savoirs, Activité, Contextes  (DéPSAC);

  • Recherche en Didactique et evaluation dans une approche Comparative et Antnthropologique de la professionnalisation en éducation et en formation (DECAP);

  • EXPérience, Evaluation, Représentation, Innovation, comporteMENT (EXPERIMENT);

  • Dispositifs institutionnels d'aide-accompagnement & savoirs  (DIAS);

  • Educations (à), territoires, développement et sociétés (EDT2S);

  • Geste créatif et activité formative (GCAF);

  • Rôle des artefacts dans l'efficacité de l'éducation scientifique et technologique (EAST)
